Reply:The tree originated somewhere near Iran, Georgia or central Asia. The juice is pink and makes grenadine syrup which is a tasty soft drink, and a useful ingredient for cocktails such as Singapore sling. You can buy pomegranates in supermarkets, but I%26#039;ve never seen any growing in temperate places like NZ or Britain.
Reply:The Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub or small tree growing to 5–8 m tall. The pomegranate is native to the region from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran to the Himalayas in northern India and has been cultivated and naturalized over the whole Mediterranean region and the Caucasus since ancient times. It is widely cultivated throughout Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, India, the drier parts of southeast Asia, Peninsular Malaysia, the East Indies, and tropical Africa. Introduced into Latin America and California by Spanish settlers in 1769, pomegranate is now cultivated mainly in the drier parts of California and Arizona for its fruits exploited commercially as juice products gaining in popularity since 2001[1][2]. In the global functional food industry, pomegranate is included among a novel category of exotic plant sources called superfruits[3].
Reply:its purpleish red. its a very sweet fruit. to me it was a cross between a grape and a cherryishh thing. DELICIUOUS. you cut it open and all the seeds pour out. each sed had a sweet-juicy fruiting around it. people usually suck on them then spit out the seeds but others eat the seeds too.


Why is pomegranate so popular now?

Up until this year I had never heard of it, and now it seems to be everywhere I look: juices, health drinks, soaps, lotions, etc. and is it imported from somewhere?

Reply:Pomegranate ripens in the winter (from September to January) so it is widely available around that time period. Besides pomegranate tastes great!
Reply:the company that sell pomegranate spent 20 million dollars last year in PR to make sure people new how healthy it is.
Reply:I think its just an american thing phase type of thing. Like 3 years ago there was all of a sudden low carb bread and pasta and everything.

I grew up in italy and we always had them around. I love them personally. My fiance is Indian and his family has eaten them since he was growing up too (he is 29 now)
Reply:this would be one of the main reasons but there are many more:

Pomegranate fruits contain polyphenols, tannins and anthocyanins - all are beneficial antioxidants. Interestingly, pomegranate juice contains high levels of antioxidants - higher than most other fruit juices, red wine or green tea.

Pomegranate Sorbet in Champagne


Look for large, heavy pomegranates to yield dark red juice. Serve the sorbet in shallow bowls in a pool of Champagne or pass glasses of Champagne alongside.


7 large pomegranates-- 6 halved crosswise, plus 1 peeled and separated into seeds, for garnish

3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Chilled brut Champagne, for serving

Candied Clementines

Using a large citrus juicer, ream 12 of the pomegranate halves to yield 2 cups of juice. Strain the juice if necessary to remove any seeds or white pith.

2. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar with 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water. Simmer the syrup over moderate heat until thick and reduced to 3/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Stir the syrup and lemon juice into the pomegranate juice. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer%26#039;s instructions. While the sorbet is churning, chill a stainless steel bowl in the freezer. As soon as the sorbet is done, transfer it to the chilled bowl.

3. To serve, scoop the pomegranate sorbet into chilled dessert bowls or Champagne saucers. Pour Champagne around the sorbet, garnish with 3 or 4 Candied Clementines and sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds.

MAKE AHEAD The pomegranate juice can be frozen for up to 1 month. The pomegranate sorbet can be frozen, covered, for up to 2 days.

Christmas Pavlova by Nigella Lawson

8 large egg whites

pinch of salt

1 2/3 cups sugar

1 tbsp cornstarch

2 tsp vinegar

1 tsp rosewater

2 pomegranates

juice of 1/2 a lemon

2 1/4 cups heavy cream

1 baking sheet and parchment paper

Preheat your oven to 350F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and draw an 8-inch circle on the paper (i use the base of my spring form cake pan here)

Beat the egg whites and salt until satiny peaks form. Beat in the sugar, a scattered spoonful at a time, until it turns stiff and shiny. Sprinkle over the cornstarch, vinegar and rosewater and fold in lightly (you can use a metal spoon, the kind we use for soups or salads)

Mound onto the baking tray within the circle, flatten the top and smooth the sides (you dont have to do it perfectly, its home cooking anyways, just remember, the more ramshakle it looks, the better the results).

Put it in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 300F. Cook for 1 3/4 hours. When you feel that its cook through, (just remember that the pavlova has to be crispy on the outside, and marshmallowy on the inside, its easy, dont worry) turn off the oven and let the pavlova cool in it completely, just open the oven door slightly. You can also make this in advance and store it in an airtight container for a week (i%26#039;ve tried, its still fresh).

Now, cut the pomegranates in half and juice it, you can use and electric juicer for this procedure. Decant the juice into a small saucepan along with the lemon juice. Bring to the boil and let bubble for a few minutes or until the mixture starting to resemble like a syrup. Take off the heat and let it cool.

Whip the heavy cream until thick but not stiff (i always do it half way on my free standing mixer and carry on by hand, beating creams just makes me nervous!), just look for that %26#039;airy%26#039; texture here.

Ok, assembly time, almost there now. Oh! almost forgot, dont be panic if your pavlova%26#039;s crack, its %26#039;the%26#039; look here, believe me, if its cracked, then its good.

Invert the pavlova onto a big flat bottomed plate, peel off the baking parchment. Pile the cream on top (no neatness here, just go with the flow, i use my worn out spatula and just make airy points on top, dollop by dollop while Beth Orton%26#039;s singing in the background)

Now, halve the second pomegranate and hold one half (cut side down) over the creamed topped pavlova and start bashing it with a wodden spoon (just make sure you dont hit your own hand, speaking from experience). Let the seeds shower the cream, move about in circle as you bash and let some fall on the rim of the plate.

Finally, drizzle over the shining syrup and with gusto, take it to the table.

Note: this is wonderful fridge cold too, if there%26#039;s any leftover in sight that is.

Good luck! (Well, you dont neet it actually, coz its easy, have fun trying it out!)
Reply:Golden Beet and Pomegranate Salad

3 golden beets (can use regular red beets if you want, just not as pretty)

1 cup diced red onion

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/4 cup chicken broth or vegetable broth

3 tablespoons Triple Sec or other orange-flavored liqueur

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

1 cup pomegranate seeds


2 cups arugula and butter lettuce leaves

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1 Cook the beets - either boil them for 45 minutes or roast them at 375°F for an hour. Let cool. Peel and dice into 1/2 inch cubes.

2 In a 10 to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over high heat, boil beets, onion, vinegar, broth, liqueur, sugar, and orange peel, stirring often, until liquid is reduced to 2 tablespoons, 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, or chill airtight up to 1 day.

3 Stir pomegranate seeds into the beet mixture and salt to taste. Serve on top of salad greens on individual plates. Sprinkle with feta cheese.

Serves 4.

Roasted Salmon With Pomegranate-Avocado Salsa

Makes 4 servings

2 teaspoons ground coriander

2 teaspoons sugar

Salt, as needed

1 pomegranate, seeded

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper or to taste

1 large clove garlic, chopped finely

2 avocados, preferably Hass, cut in 1/2-inch dice

1 head heart of romaine, about 7 ounces

4 center-cut salmon fillets

the same thickness, 6 to 7 ounces each

1 lime, cut in eighths for garnish

Mix coriander, sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt; reserve.

Up to 4 hours before serving, mix pomegranate seeds, onion, lime juice, jalapeño, and garlic; gently fold in avocado. If holding more than 30 minutes, put plastic wrap against the surface of the salsa, then tightly cover; store in the refrigerator. Remove about 30 minutes before serving.

Separate the romaine leaves; wash, then dry thoroughly. Reserve 4 of the most attractive for garnish. Slice the remaining leaves crosswise in thin shreds; reserve.

To prepare the salmon, rub a generous teaspoon of the reserved seasoning mixture over each piece. Arrange the salmon on a baking sheet, skin-side down. Roast at 500 degrees F about 11 minutes for medium rare (salmon should be spongy when pressed with a finger at its thickest part) and 13 minutes for medium-well (salmon should be just firm when pressed with a finger at its thickest part).

While the salmon cooks, mound 1/4 of the shredded romaine on each of 4 serving plates. Top with 1/2 cup salsa. When salmon is done let it cool slightly; it should be warm but not hot. Put a piece of salmon on each plate; garnish each with a reserved romaine leaf and 2 lime wedges.
Reply:Fresh Pomegranate and Orange Juice

1 pomegranate

1/4 cup water

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

sugar to taste

2 tsp orange-flower water

fresh mint sprigs for garnish

Fill a large bowl with water. Cut the pomegranate in half lengthwise. Holding the fruit under the water, break it apart, seperating the seeds from the skin and the white pith. The seeds will drop to the bottom of the bowl, while the pith will float to the surface. Transfer the seeds to a colander or strainer. Rinse, removing any bits of remaining skin and pith.

In a blender or a juicer, puree the pomegranate seeds with the water. Strain through a find-meshed sieve, pressing the puree with the back of a large spoon to extract as much liquid as possible. Transfer to a container and stir in the orange juice, sugar, and orange-flower water. Serve over ice cubes and garnish with mint sprigs.

Is there a "proper" method to eat a pomegranate?

I love pomegranates but I really don%26#039;t know the %26quot;right way%26quot; to eat one (or if there even IS a %26quot;right way%26quot;)! I know it%26#039;s a silly question but I%26#039;m really curious. I%26#039;m tired of getting the juice all over me!

Is there a %26quot;proper%26quot; method to eat a pomegranate?
Maybe this will help you?

I personally always just make a mess everywhere and stain my fingers! lol Maybe I should read the article too...
Reply:Personally I cant think of a proper way to eat them - they are disgusting things but if you must

some people break them open then just bite at the fruit.

Other people sit and pick out the segments with a pin,

My sister and I as children used to break them open , pull the segments apart with our fingers and then pop the little balls in our mouth. We were talking the other week and we found out we both hated them, we only ate them because we were expected to.
Reply:Don%26#039;t eat the white fibrous bits. They taste like death.

If you have a juicer, apparently the juice is amazing. But then you have to have loads of pomegranates. Maybe good if you%26#039;re from Iran Afghanistan or Pakistan where they grow everywhere anyway.
Reply:haha i know the juice is really annoying.I dont think there is a %26quot;right%26quot; way,and it doesnt matter how you eat it. (i met someone who eats french fries with a fork.)

sorry i didnt really help much. =[
Reply:cut the pomegranate open and then get all the seeds out in a bowl of cold water. this really helps don%26#039;t ask why. then drain in a colander and put in a bowl and eat with a spoon.
Reply:use some gloves like surgical ones and your fingers do not get stained. i cut mine and use a spoon and do this out side and rinse off the ground.

Are pomegranate leaves poisonous to cats?

I had a hard time finding any research on this, the best I could come up with was a question about dogs and pomegranates on the aspca site. The answer was that any part of the pomegranate can cause central nervous system depression in pets.

My guess is that cats should also not ingest any part of the pomegranate, including the leaves.

Hope this helps.

Also, I included the link, the question about the pomegranates is at the very bottom of the page.

Does pomegranate juice spoil if left at room temperature?
yeah most juices spoil if u leave out to long
Reply:only if it has been opened

it will last 4- 5 months if not 1 year unopened.

check on the bottem for solid sediment. if there is alot dont drink.
Reply:yes it goes rancide, as well as flax seed oil
Reply:Yes, very quickly.
Reply:yes keep it refrigerated
Reply:Is the container open? If it is, i would discard it.
Reply:It depends on the manufacturer really. Most of them need to be refridgerated but there are one or two brands that can be kept at room temp as long as they are not opened. I know for sure that Pom needs to be kept refridgerated. Brands like Langers do not.

A basic rule of thumb: If it was kept refridgerated (or on ice as i see frequently with POM) at the store, you should refridgerate it when you get home. If you bought it off the shelf in the juice aisle, it can be kept at room temp until you open it.

Most juices will say either %26quot;keep refridgerated%26quot; or %26quot;refridgerate after opening%26quot; on the back label. blog
